Leadership Simplified: Doug Van Dyke

Upcoming Workshops

Leadership Development Program

Leaders impact culture! Nothing will impact the culture of your organization more positively than a well-rounded, cutting-edge leader. Raise the bar of excellence by attending or sponsoring someone to attend our engaging, high-impact leadership development program.  

Description of Program

Over a 12-week period participants will receive world-class training developed by Doug Van Dyke of Leadership Simplified. The training sessions will take place weekly. If a participant has a schedule-conflict with one of the classes, no problem, they can attend one of the weekly make-up classes. It should be noted that participants can reinforce and expand their learning by attending the make-up session in addition to the regularly scheduled session. Participants are encouraged to attend both sessions if their schedules permit. 

There will be an assignment associated with each training session that must be completed prior to the next meeting. In addition, after each class the participants will be required to write a one-page summary of the material covered. The summary will also include their takeaways and application of the material.

Each participant will receive a thumb drive with five audio sessions during the course of the twelve classes. The audios and will help to reinforce the mission-critical material that was covered during the training sessions. Throughout the training curriculum each participant will have access to Leadership Simplified’s online resources. In addition, upon graduation from the program, each participant will receive an autographed copy of Leadership Simplified – The Field Guide for Savvy Leaders

"The insight I have gained from attending the Leadership Development course on ‘managing verses leading’ is empowering! Having managed for the past 16 plus years, I look forward to leading for the next 16.

Skills that I have put to use have already changed my days. My time is better spent and my availability to get the 'special' projects underway are being managed much better than 10 weeks ago. As I continue to enhance my leadership skills, I am certain it will make a difference for us as we "move" forward as a team.

Thank you, I really enjoyed the class."

It is amazing how these straight forward tips, tools and strategies can truly make a difference in an organization.
